Are you currently finding yourself sitting uncomfortable in a body that is carrying excess weight (especially around the middle) that NEVER used to be there?
Have you previously been fit with an exercise plan that worked, and now it’s either failing you or you don’t have the energy for it?
I get it. I was in a fit, healthy body for the majority of my life. I ate healthily and exercise was always important to me. I loved cycling, lifted weights and did hatha yoga classes each week. I was healthy and my body was at a healthy weight.
And then …………… 🔥 major stress and this adrenal fatigue thing hit. And hit me hard! Before I knew it, I had gained an extra 15 pounds. 😭😭 I felt like a foreigner in my body, especially since excess weight had NEVER been an issue for me and I didn’t know what to make of it.
So yes I understand, fully!
BUT ✅ I found a different way to deal with this. ✅ And I did find a way to get my body weight (AND MY HEALTH) back into balance.
⚡ Ok. Are YOU ready for a reframe?⚡💖 First up – thank your body for doing its job perfectly.
When your body gets stressed, there is all this extra stress hormone release such as cortisol from your adrenal glands.
Cortisol is simply doing its job in response to a body that is in stress mode.
It’s protecting you, building up the fat in your body, especially around your middle and your thighs (I know just where you want it right) to protect you for a possible famine (yikes!). So every time you want to go in the direction of
❌ I can’t stand this body fat,
❌ I can’t stand this extra weight and when is it going to go,
I want you to see that as a perfect time to flip the thought.
Say things instead like:
✅ Thank your body for all that you’re doing for me.
✅ Thank you body for working perfectly for me.
✅ Thank you for the profound messages that you’re waking me up to.
And from here take the time to really get to the bottom of what’s not working in your life.
